Art Auction and Giveaway


There is a Charity Auction Event being hosted by the Inspiration Avenue Etsy Team. The Art Auction will take place March 7th-14th. There will be art from all over the globe. There will be jewelry, photographs, mixed-media, paintings, etc, to bid on. The event is to benefit Angel Faces, a wonderful retreat for adolescent girls (11-19 yrs) with facial disfigurements. These young ladies get to meet up for a week and go through art therapy, group therapy, one-on-one therapy and learn how to respond to the general public when someone makes a comment about how they look a little different. They also learn how to apply makeup so that their scars are not so evident. These young ladies walk away with a bit more confidence, a whole lot of healing and the proper tools to get them where they want to be. It is a fabulous program! These girls get to be themselves without any worry that someone will judge them, for one whole week. It is a major self esteem booster and a place that will touch them emotionally for the rest of their lives. 
So if you would like to have a part in this event, then please come join in the fun the week of March 7th-14th. If you would be so kind to blog about this using the above flier along with a link HERE, I/we would be ever so grateful. 
I will have a giveaway for all of you who blog about this Art Auction. Just leave me a comment on this post telling me you have done so. The giveaway winner will be chosen by the random generator and announced on March 15th, here on my blog.
I am so excited about this!! Eeek!
